  • Visited Mt. Showa Museum wanted to go to the high mountains at a pace that once a year, but that is not the first! I went. What is left in memory of their childhood so much "had it right" with friends and was very impressed. And I felt nostalgia.

  • During my appearance, was born in Showa irresistible nostalgic magnets in nature. Views are divided into paid and free zones, at least going to pay zone! The old fashioned sweets and toys on sale, will instinctively want to buy!

  • The lady in charge is so nice, even she doesn't speak english, she tries to explain anything to you. It is a small museum, easy to see, we got entertained by an old console we used to play Mario Kart with it.
  • Fantastic day at Museum, retro items from he 1960,s and we'll displayed. Needs a cafe or place to rest and could expand into next door shop. Great value but.
  • Experience what Japanese life was like in the economic boom during the Showa period. Unlike other museums where you cannot touch most of the exhibits this place allows you to interact with the items/objects/artifacts! Try your hand at some retro pachinko machines or try some old school pinball. There is a souvenir shop at well so you can take home some memorabilia.
  • Absolutely LOVED this museum. Everyone I thought I had seen everything Takayama has to offer it would present me with another gem. This place is an unassuming lolly shop from the front but actually turns into a 2 story museum of everything about Japan from the Showa period (during the 80's) it was awesome for photos and as a cool insight into Japanese shops, homes and even schools. Some of my favourite activities included the vintage Pachinko, the recreation of the drs surgery and the movie theatre. If you have time I would highly recommend a visit here.
  • It’s like a museum that thought back everything in Japan’s Showa generation. I saw Showa’s apartment, police station , barbershop ,cinema and classroom. You can also try transitional dress”kimono” free. There are also exhibition of old toys and games. It’s very worth to go!!!!!!!
